With summer right around the corner, you’re probably looking for a bit of travel inspiration to finally book that much-needed holiday you plan on taking this year. Thankfully, two popular Croatian destinations might just be the scratch to your travel itch. 

Namely, the promotional film of the Dubrovnik-Neretva County Tourist Board titled “Dubrovnik Riviera”, which was directed by Herve Tirmarche, filmed by Jajij Armija and produced by Spomenko Sarage and Balducchi Film, won the first place and the gold medal at the American Telly Awards festival, reports HRTurizam on May 22, 2019. 


The second place at the festival was awarded to the promotional film“Visit Lika”, created by the Tourist Board of Lika-Senj County under the baton of Bobby B. Grubic, a three-time Emmy winner. The video was also produced by Spokesman Sarage and Balducci Film.


The Telly Awards each year showcases the best works recorded for television and other media. Over 12,000 entries from more than 50 countries on five continents are received each year. The winners of the Telly Awards work from some of the most prestigious advertising agencies, television stations, production houses and publishers around the world.

The Telly Awards are judged by the jury, or members of the Council that is made up of more than 200 members, active professionals from various areas of television, marketing, and the like. This year, the Telly Awards celebrated 40 years. 

These two Croatian promotional films have already won several silver and bronze prizes at the world’s largest travel fair ITB, 2nd place by the jury and the best tourist film by student tourism management in Japan, and the bronze prize at “New York Festivals” which was awarded in Las Vegas during the “NAB Show” media event.
